I'm currently in the process of starting my first business. After years of working for others I'm having a go myself and thought I'd write about my experience, somebody out there might find it useful if they're thinking about doing the same. My main business is going to be www.spreadsheetsdirect.com but I'm also going to be offering www.pchomeaid.co.uk and www.pcofficeaid.co.uk to the Southport, UK area. It's amazing how many little bits and bobs there are to do from registering as self employed to getting all the webpages looking how you want. I've found myself thinking about things that I can offer while I'm trying to get to sleep. I've now got to the stage were I'm advertising on google and just waiting for the first client to turn up.
